2014 Curriculum Management Milestone Plan Review Plan as of March 2014 KS IUG - April 3, 2014
Assumptions Across KS, Milestones (content & timing) are specific to each product stream. –Except ENR-CO & ENR-CR, which share milestone timing Milestone plans will evolve as needs & circumstances warrant change. –This plan reflects what we know now. Milestone completion is based on goals and priorities, not time. Since all product streams now share the same “trunk” codebase, we all take Rice upgrades at the same time. Attention to cross-product stream impact is important.
Recognizing Uncertainty Certainty Milestones Certainty arises from knowledge about work being planned & knowledge about how the team works. New teams, new product streams Analysis & design stronger for near-term work; less so for future work Mitigation: Just like we did last year, continue to update estimates each milestone * For illustrative purposes Q1Q2Q3Q4
KS Curriculum Management Milestone 1 Merge with Trunk Cleanup Course Processes: Create Course Modify Course Retire Course Automated Testing Rice 2.4 Upgrade “First Pass” – Updated 2/28/2014 Milestone 2 Organization Contribution Convert Program to KRAD: Create Modify Retire Milestone 3 Finish KRAD Conversion: Dependency Analysis Learning Objectives Course Set Browse Course Browse Program Release Candidat e Cycle Prepare for Founders’ Release Milestone 4 Minors: Create Program Modify Program Retire Program Founders’ Release Milestone 5 Professional Programs: Create Program Modify Program Retire Program Q1Q2Q3Q4
KS Curriculum Management Implications: Founders’ Release occurs in Q3, rather than Q2. Program enhancements start Q3 later, depending on KRAD conversion velocity. Future Scope: Certificate Programs Sequence Courses Special Topics Courses
